    The area I hunt opens the 15th of August.... coming fast.

    Got the barrel modified this year, put a 3/8 steel rod around the hole so the bears wouldn't rub any fur off while eating/digging the food out. Also cut it down 3.5 inches in height. Now sits at 30" tall roughly. Wyoming law only allows container(s) that equal a total of a 55 gallon barrel. Now I can hang a 5 gallon bucket up in the tree for a stink bait to help establish a new bait site.

    I can start baiting the 8th. Will go up and set the 2 different sites and hang the trail cameras and see what happens...

    Should be a hoot again. My soon to be 13 year old is legal this year and has his tag as well as my wife again.

    will post more as it happens and maybe put up some pics of the barrels, sites, trail cam pics, etc. as it all unfolds.....

    You no longer have to host pix on photobucket.
